The lamps in Sony video projectors don't last forever and need to be replaced periodically. Projectors use timers to record how many hours of use a projector lamp has logged, and the units will not work once a certain number of hours have been logged. But replacing the lamp isn't the whole process, since most projectors will not detect when you install a fresh lamp. You must manually reset the Sony projector's internal lamp timer.
